Is it this exhaust? https://japan.webike.net/products/23878206.html
I've been eyeing that one since before I bought my bike. Would love if you could shoot a video showing how loud it is.
This is a discussion on Takegawa std exhaust within the Monkey Talk forums, part of the Honda Monkey 125 Forums category; Super stealthy! Hey guy used to have a 235cc fibro from with all the goodies. Picked this up in December and haven't done much riding ...

I wanted a exhaust that was catless and would increase ground clearance without being crazy loud.
My old grom had dual AR with custom inserts and was almost as loud as a harley.
This one fit the bill. Loudness with the factory exhaust was 1/10. This is 3/10. Quieter than my lawnmower but has some potatoes sound to it. It is only a slightly larger diameter than stock but no cant shorter header and the muffler is pretty straight through. It also looks 100% stock. Fits as stock with stock heat shields.
Just an option for non big bore monklets.
I also did some airbox venting and plan to add maybe a power commander vision or something shortly. It is much more responsive with this pipe immediately. Well see how top speed is affected. It's similar to my old grom which only did 55 from new then around 600 mile first oil change and service it was hitting 65 on the flat.
It added nearly 3" of ground clearance to the bike which is a big deal for me.
Yes that is it. It's not loud at all you should be asking how quiet it is. Like I said it's really not much louder than factory! Quieter than a lawnmower but has a tiny bit of "bark" now. I'll get a video up eventually.
I don't think they were in stock last time I looked. Did you go with Sea Freight, DHL or something else? Wondering if Sea Freight really takes 2 months.
I used DHL and got it I'm 3 days. They just came into stock. Total cost was around 300$ shipped. Little expensive bit the only option I could find that increased ground clearance. I keep banging the stock pipe on the trails.
Few pics from today. The exhaust is probably a 3.5/10 at wide open high rpm. Noticeable but definitely not obnoxious.
Thanks for the feedback on the noise level.
I was waiting for these to come into stock and at the same time they did Hot Lap released there trail exhaust which just looks way too good so I have placed an order for one of those over this one but I’m sure it’s going to be louder, hopefully still reasonable.
The hot lap was a contender but cost more and there weren't any pictures out. It looks like it does the usual wrap around below the engine? I bet it will be crazy loud but with Japan cert maybe not?
I ask the question and they fwd thru so pics before placing my order.
I like the fact that it is stainless and I used that as a reason for the additional cost 😉
Nice looking exhaust but too bad it has the under engine loop. I've hit my stock pipe already the first 100 miles.
